I struggle with hair. I’m never really happy with fondant hair. It always looks flat and lifeless.
Also, I love using unexpected ingredients.
On my last cake I combined the two and made hair out of Chow Mein Noodles! Yeah, I did!
It’s a crazy fast way to make some crazy hair…
Sometimes you need some crazy hair. I was very happy with the finished look, and the guests LOVED eating it. I’ll admit, cutting through it was a bit messy, but there were plenty of eager hands reaching out and grabbing up crumbs.
Coat chow mein noodles in melted candy melts and spread out on a sheet pan. Let them cool and break into chunks. Stick them on with more chocolate!
You can do that!
Give it a try! The possibilities are endless! Let me see what you make!
